APSAC Research to Practice Briefs
In order for APSAC to achieve our goal of strengthening practice through knowledge, we must ensure that up-to-date, high quality research results are reaching the practitioners who need it most. To accomplish this, APSAC is assembling cadres of individuals working in psychology, social work, medicine, child welfare, and law to write 2-3 page translational summaries of articles from Child Maltreatment. These briefs are designed to provide clear policy and practice implications of the research useful to people working in different disciplines. Briefs may appear in the APSAC Advisor, the APSAC Alert, on the APSAC website, and in other places as needed.
APSAC collaborates with faculty at academic institutions to offer graduate students the opportunity to write briefs that meet our criteria and received feedback from professionals. Such briefs are identified with a "student author."
If you are interested in writing these translational pieces or bringing this project to your classroom as an assignment, contact Bri Stormer
